I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent people who have a great deal of expertise and professional capability across all functional areas.
Base salary is competitive, though bonus payments, - tied to business results- are rarely qualified for.

Cons

No long term vision of what the company wants to be or achieve. Immediate focus is on achieving a string of profitable quarters in readiness for a IPO and very little else. Cost cutting in the form of staff layoffs is occurring at the end of every Quarter leaving less do do the same amount of work.
Significant turn-over at senior levels leading to lack of consistent direction.
Very hierarchical structure with little to no empowerment to make decisions at lower levels.

Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Avaya offers great people to work with from diverse backgrounds. Employees are not micro managed.

    Cons

    Little to no communication prior to changes made within the company. It is a constant revolving door, large amount of "hires" and "fires" in the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include employees that have to implement new processes in on the creation of the new process. To develop a process without the input of those who will have to do the work gives the impression that you do not value their opinon.

    No opinion of CEO
